Karen & Davey at the New Neighborhood Park with the Sandia Mountians in the Background
Wow, what a crazy and amazing March 2010 we had! In the last month I turned in my notice at Vicon in Houston, we competed at sectionals in Austin, we helped pull off an amazing 60th birthday party for my Mom in Porter, we packed all our stuff, moved to Albuquerque, I started a new job at Norman S. Wright SW and we got settled in our new house.
I guess we will start with sectionals. March 13th-14th. What a great and humbling experience. I placed 57th out of 130 men. Karen had a couragous effort that put her at 59th out of 66 women. And we both had the pleasure of cheering for our buddy Jeanna Cournoyer on her way to a 5th place finish sending her to regionals. Of course we wish we had done better, but it just was not our day as they say. To be honest I am not sure I would have been able to qualify even on my best day...there were just a lot of really fit individuals there. The competition was well run and the WODs were broad and fairly written. I look forward to giving it a go again next year. As long as I am capable and as long as they let me, I'm going to keep at it. Karen is very motivated for next year, she is going to come back stronger than ever. These experiences will only make us better at everything we do.
